### Data - Years 7 to 9

The 12 learning objects in this collection relate to the use, collection, display, comparison and interpretation of data. Objects in the first category, statistical data graphs, enable students to explore data using a range of graphical analysis tools. Objects in the second category, analysing surveys, enable students to ...

### Middle value or value that appears most often?

You might have heard the terms median and mode. Do you get them mixed up? The median is the middle value. The mode is the value that appears most often. See how to work each out using a data set about goals scored in soccer matches.

### What's the mean number of goals scored?

The mean is the average of a data set. In this example of finding the mean, data is represented in a table. It shows the frequency of goals scored for 20 soccer matches. See how to find the mean, or average, number of goals scored.

### Dividing data into quartiles

Have you heard of a quartile when talking about data? Dividing the data into four equal sets gives you quartiles. Find out the term we use for the middle quartile. See what the special term is for the middle 50 per cent range of data. Lastly, see how to find values for these quartiles using a data set.

### The sweet interquartile range

Do you know how to find the interquartile range of frequency data? In this clip, see how it's done using data collected about numbers of sweets. The first step is to find Q1 (lower quartile) and then Q3 (upper quartile). Next watch how a cumulative frequency curve is used to find the interquartile range of grouped frequency ...

### Fix the matchbox machine: scoop size

Check whether a machine is packing most matchboxes with an acceptable number of matches (40–60 matches per box). Look at boxplots made after taking samples of 100 matchboxes. Analyse the data and identify whether results are within the tolerance range. Adjust the machine's scoop size (if needed) to make it work correctly. ...

Check whether a machine is packing most matchboxes with an acceptable number of matches (40–60 matches per box). Look at boxplots made after taking samples of 100 matchboxes. Analyse the data and identify whether results are within the tolerance range. Adjust the machine's scoop size (if needed) to make it work correctly. ...

### Matchbox machine: take a sample

Check whether a machine is packing most matchboxes with an acceptable number of matches (40–60 matches per box). Take a sample of 100 matchboxes and make a boxplot to analyse the results. Sort the sample data into four equal groups. Identify the range, median, first and third quartile values. Position the data points to ...

### Matchbox machine: plot the variation

Check whether a machine is packing most matchboxes with an acceptable number of matches (40–60 matches per box). Take a sample of 100 matchboxes and make a boxplot to analyse the results. Sort the sample data into four equal groups. Identify the range, median, first and third quartile values. Position the data points to ...

### Scatter plots

Find out what a scatter plot is and how it can be used to investigate relationships between two variables. Analyse data for a pair of variables such as hand span and foot length. Enter your personal data and plot it with other data on a graph. Use a line of best fit to identify if there is a positive or negative relationship ...

### Scatter plots: height and bellybutton height

Find out what a scatter plot is and how it can be used to investigate relationships between two variables. Analyse data for a pair of variables: a person's height and the height of their bellybutton measured from the floor. Enter your personal data and plot it with other data on a graph. Use a line of best fit to identify ...

### Scatter plots: age and reaction time

Find out what a scatter plot is and how it can be used to investigate relationships between two variables.
